Ms. Kim May

Special Education Team Leader


My name is Kim May and I'm so excited to be a Shepard Patriot.... again!  I attended school at Shepard and my oldest daughter did too.  I love the community and environment this campus encompasses.  I grew up in Plano, and after graduating from Plano Senior High, I attended Louisiana Tech University.  I lived in south Louisiana for 12 years and moved back home after Hurricane Katrina.  I completed my bachelor's at Texas A&M- Commerce.  

I have been teaching in the district for 10 years, on the Plano Senior High campus.  I've always taught Special Education- in a self-contained classroom.  I was also the Varsity and Junior Varsity Cheer coach for 5 years at PSHS.  

I am blessed with having two beautiful girls.  Madelynn (22yo) just graduated, May 2022, from Louisiana Tech in Finance.  Her plan is to move back to Texas after graduation, and I could not be happier.  Grace Ann (19yo) just became a 2022 graduate from PSHS.  We call her "Amazing Grace".  I have had the privilege of being her teacher the last two years, as she's been one of my students in the self-contained classes.  Grace Ann will continue school at the Solomon Campus (Adult Transition Center) through PISD.

This is a wonderful opportunity for me, and I'm excited to start this new journey with all of you!
